A Fresh Start
The past few months have been emotional for me. First, my sister gave birth to her first baby, after waiting for 6 long years! I'm now an official tita (auntie)!
Second, I've finally decided to leave my job of 11 years in the IT industry to have a fresh start. Just like in KonMari, I've learned to let go of what's no longer serving me to create space for the things that bring further joy to my life. It's a bittersweet decision, but I'm excited for what's in store for me! I'll probably dedicate another blog post for this story.
Now that I'm taking some time to rest and spend time with my family and passions, I've decided to give another go in Konmari-ing our home. Our home deserves a fresh start too, right?
Using my decluttering checklist (which you can also download here), I was able to re-tidy our closets, documents, bookshelves, office supplies, accessories and junk drawers. I'm also happy to see that our pantry and kitchen are still in order. Because most, if not all of our stuff have a designated place already, it only took me about 3 days to declutter and organize everything. It really felt great to see our home clean and in order again! See below for some snapshots of what I've accomplished!
Aside from this, my passion project (My Joyful Space) is also having a fresh start! I've decided to create a dedicated Instagram account for this blog so you can get more frequent decluttering motivations, quick organizing ideas and even product finds! Please follow @myjoyfulspaceph and let me know if you have specific topics you'd like me to post about! If ever you get inspired to start your own decluttering journey, feel free to tag me! I'd be happy to give any support or simply see your joyful spaces!
